Fat Quarter Style Book Giveaway

I have a giveaway on offer today, 'Fat Quarter Style'  book of 12 quilt designs all made using fat quarter cuts of fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop's publishing arm 'It's Sew Emma'.   


Its a 65 page large format (A4 style) booklet : check out the youtube video showing you more here.  These are my favourites below:


'Primrose' is a lovely floral design, I like the staggered grid layout and as with all the quilts, there are easy instructions and diagrams showing you the requirements and changes to make a large range of different sizes.  I like the dark contrast background here too, it would look great with a navy pin dot print.


As with the books they did with Lori Holt, the photography is generous and clear.  The instructions are excellent and there is there usual tools/techniques section at the beginning to get you started or to pick up a few tips for you more experienced quilters.



I also liked 'Blossom' and it's easy strip pieced construction.  I have picked the griller vintage style quilts first (no surprise there) but there are more graphic bold shape quilts inside, many of which would make a good boy/man quilt.  I thought the 'Raindrops' design had a lot of potential to explore colour value and solids/textured fabrics and create a variety of different effects.


To win a copy you have up to three entry chances:  GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED, a winner has been drawn!

Entry one: Comment on this post- anything you like
Extra Entry: Blog followers get an extra entry
Extra Entry: I am @verykerryberry on Instagram, leave a comment on my  giveaway pic of the Fat Quarter Style book cover there for an extra entry.

Entries will be drawn on Monday 25th August.  The winner will be chosen by Random Number generator.  I will start the numbering with the blog entries and add the IG entries on after that.  I must be able to find contact details for you, if I can't I will draw another name.  I have the book here generously supplied by the folks at Fat Quarter Shop and it is on my bookshelf ready to send so international entries are welcome.

For those of you in UK and Europe, Lori Holt put a message out on Instaram that Kaleidescope books- Kalquilts have started selling Quilty Fun and Great Granny Squared.  I don't know if they will stock subsequent Its Sew Emma books but it's a start!
